Shinerama campaign celebrates successes in dollars and sense

The 2016 UWindsor Shinerama campaign not only raised an amazing amount of money, says co-ordinator Jessica Tetrault, it raised incredible awareness about cystic fibrosis.

An annual tradition, the student-run campaign donated $7,177 to Cystic Fibrosis Canada for its research and support programs.

“We have made some incredible connections this year, and we could not be more proud of the work we have done,” says Tetrault. “WE couldn’t have done it without the contributions of everyone who made this year such a success.”

She says the highlight of her year was hearing students say “I have seen Shinerama everywhere this year!”
